If anyone is wondering if the expense of upgrading the suspension is worth it, the answer is YES. Although the 2006 GTO with 18" rims isn't at the level of a good Corvette, it is now comparable to an M3. Taking corners faster is much easier and less apprehensive. It doesn't feel like Dad's sedan.

Here is what was installed:

B&G springs front and rear (rear drops .75" & front drops 1.25")
Koni front struts and rear shocks at the middle setting
Noltec front radius rod bushings
Noltec IRS Camber adjustment bushings
Hotchkis front and rear sway bars at the 63% & 76% stiffer setting
Energy Suspension complete master bushing set

The ride is only marginally stiffer, and not at all uncomfortable.

Did you do the install or did you have it done? I've got some questions RE: rear ES bushing install.

The Pontiac dealership where I purchased the car installed the parts. It took the better part of four days.
